Tell Siri who your family is
Add your partner
The first relationship most people want to add is their partner. Hold the Home button to activate Siri, and say something like “John Appleseed is my husband” or “Jane Appleseed is my wife”. Note that Siri also recognises other relationships such as partner, fiancé, girlfriend or boyfriend. Siri requests that you confirm you want to add the relationship.
Add other people
You can continue adding people to Siri by telling Siri who they are. You can add your mother, father, brother, sister, and even tell Siri that people are your friend, assistant or manager. You can even add custom labels, such as ‘tennis coach’ or ‘dancing partner’, if you like. Just tell Siri who all the important people are in your life one by one.
All the information about your family is stored in your personal card in Contacts. Tap the Contacts app and scroll down to find the Related Names section to find all the family relationships. To remove a relationship, tap Edit and then the red Remove icon next to the person. Finally, tap Delete. We find it easiest to add relationships using Siri.
